NIPSA members employed by the Department for Communities working in Disability, Carers Service and Supplementary Payments, Personal Independence Payments, Debt Management Operations, Debt Control and Debt Project who are based at College Street and Castle Court will be taking strike action on Friday 1 November 2019 in support of the ongoing Pay, Terms and Conditions Dispute.

Members will walk out at 12.00 noon and a short rally will be held outside Castle Court at 12 noon.

Please support these members by making every effort to greet them walking out and sending messages of support.

Given the Management Side has withdrawn our ability to circulate material regarding the strike action this circular is being issued via the NIPSA website.
